Join us to celebrate local independent film makers with our Indie Film Night, presented by Portland Film Festival. Each month we'll feature a different series of independent films by local directors, with a Q&A to follow.
Portland Film Festival's Indie Film Series is proud to present two films
celebrating women's stories: So Misunderstood, a
genre-bending short film about women and workplace culture, and Los Abogadas, a feature-length documentary about female
immigration attorneys on the front lines of the migrant crisis. Stick around
after the screening for a Q&A.
Misunderstood • Directors: Seretse Njemanze and
film focuses on the nuanced work norms and cultural facets that are difficult
to pin down and challenge. Titled after a song inspired by the day-to-day
effects of implicit bias, So Misunderstood is a
genre-bending short film weaving together spoken word, music, dance, and
visuals into a story that highlights the challenge of authenticity and
inclusion in an ingrained workplace culture.
Abogadas • Director: Victoria Bruce
In the midst of escalating political rhetoric and a
burgeoning refugee crisis, Las Abogadas introduces
us to a group of heroic women attorneys who have dedicated their lives to
fighting for the most vulnerable. With unparalleled access to their intense,
daily struggles and triumphs, this film, directed by the acclaimed Victoria
Bruce, offers a deeply personal and inspiring look into the lives of those who
stand on the front lines of humanitarian justice.
